Akbar’s Restaurant was the dream of an 18-year-old boy, Shabir Hussain, who decided within six months of working in his first job that he wanted to open his own restaurant. He knew then, as early as 1988, that he was going to name it Akbar’s.Heres why. Firstly, Akbar was the name of his father to whom he dedicates the restaurant. Secondly, Akbar is a name widely known by everybody from the Far East across Asia over the Middle East up to the Mediterranean, and now the North East, across Yorkshire and up to the Midlands. As a name which exemplifies Greatness or The Great.Our PastIn 1995 the dream was realised with the opening of a small restaurant, seating 28, on Leeds Road, Bradford. Since then, through sheer enthusiasm, determination and hard work, the restaurant has never looked back, always going from strength to strength. During that period Akbar’s has gained a huge reputation for its high quality cuisine, vibrant atmosphere and first class service.Whilst the food at each restaurant is outstandingly consistent each restaurant has its own themed design. The restaurants have been designed to provide a contemporary atmosphere and carry a certain aura which is no less than being in any major city in the world.
